Less Noisy

Previous generations of the CX-5 were criticized for having a lot of engine noise, and Mazda listened. The 2017 CX-5 is quieter than ever.

Fun to Drive

Mazda’s known for infusing its affordable and practical everyday rides with a little bit of sporty fun, so the 2017 CX-5 adds a little athletic pep to your daily commute.

Backseat Features

Updated Technology

From a vehicle information head-up display to a brand-new adaptive cruise control system, the CX-5 is full of new tech.

More Compact

Competitors have been supersized to optimize space, but the CX-5 is versatile and smaller, making it a great city companion on tight streets.

Whether you’re a solo driver or hauling a family, we at Wantagh Mazda think you should get the Mazda CX-5 – it’s affordable, packed with modern amenities, and a fun drive.

Redesigned

Mazda debuted the Cx-5 crossover back in 2013, right at the front of the crossover craze that swept the United States auto industry and was poised to take the world by storm. As a compact crossover, it was made to have sporty appeal and a fun driving experience in addition to having the versatility and space of a larger vehicle. Now, the redesigned 2017 CX-5 is back and better than ever with a long list of improvements.

New vs. Old

Prior to its redesign, the Mazda CX-5 was renowned for being attractive, a fun ride, and fuel efficient. However, there were a few issues – such as a noisy engine and a cheap interior. The new interior is packed with rich materials and the outgoing engine and transmission duo is being replaced with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a minor power boost. Additionally, inside the CX-5, the cabin is better insulated for a more relaxing experience.

The redesigned 2017 CX-5 still deliver the same driving experience and fuel economy we’d expect from a Mazda. With a lightweight and aerodynamic build that makes for more nimble handling while preserving fuel economy. Curious? Stop in Wantagh Mazda today and take the 2017 Mazda CX-5 for a test drive; it’ll blow your mind.

How to Get Your Car Ready for Spring

We don’t want to get too excited about the weather warming up, but spring sure feels like it’s coming soon. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about getting your car ready for spring, so follow these easy tips!

Winter is harsh on your car, so a big part of getting ready for spring is cleaning up the mess winter left. Cleaning under your car is one of the most important things you can do, since built up slush and salt can stick and start to cause your car to rust, and it’s a spot we often forget to clean.

You’ll also want to clean the inside of the car out. Stepping in it with your wet, muddy shoes all winter has probably left it pretty grimy—wash or vacuum the carpets, clean off the seats, and scrub the inside of the windows and windshields.

Change your windshield wipers. You should do this about once a year, and they’ve just taken a serious beating. You’ll also want to switch back over to all-season blades if you have winter ones installed. Check the tire pressure and add or release air as necessary, since cold weather takes a toll on tire pressure.

Change your oil and top off any fluids that need it, since winter is rough on your engine and you may very well have lost some. And if you have questions or want to schedule post-winter service, we’re happy to help here at Wantagh Mazda!
